This series on the seven Sacraments provides readers with a deeper appreciation of God's gifts and call in the Sacraments through a renewed encounter with God's Word.
In this volume, a leading Catholic scholar offers a biblical theology of the priesthood rooted in the Old and New Testaments. Half a millennium after the Protestant Reformation and in the midst of an ongoing clerical crisis in the Catholic Church, this book presents a comprehensive biblical vision and defense of the sacramental priesthood and an informed theological response to the problem of priestly sin. It gives expression to the ministerial priesthood's biblically grounded, sacramental share in the sacrificial ministry of Jesus Christ.
The Catholic Biblical Theology of the Sacraments series is designed to complement the popular Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture series. Series volumes provide lay teachers with background and depth on the seven sacraments, making them suitable for classroom use and parish ministry. Series editors Timothy C. Gray and John Sehorn both teach at the Augustine Institute Graduate School of Theology, which equips leaders for the New Evangelization and prepares students for Christian mission. The Institute serves more than five hundred students through both on-campus and distance education programs. Gray is also president of the Augustine Institute, which has one million subscribers to its online content channel, Formed.org.
Anthony Giambrone, OP (PhD, University of Notre Dame), is vice president and professor of New Testament at the École biblique et archéologique française de Jérusalem. He also teaches at the University of Notre Dame and at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich. In addition to numerous scholarly and popular articles, he is the author of A Quest for the Historical Christ: Scientia Christi and the Modern Study of Jesus.
